The Philadelphia Association of Community Development Corporations’ (PACDC) annual magazine is both an overview of trends in the community development sector and a vehicle for promoting the organizations and individuals that comprise it.

The 2015 issue, released last week, focuses on the issues of equity and race and how they intersect with the work being done by CDCs from Chinatown to Olney.

Peter Gonzales, president of the Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians, looked at the issue of immigration, writing about how newcomers enliven old neighborhoods and what CDCs can do aid with immigrant integration and economic growth.

The winners were announced at a gala held by PACDC last Thursday, April 23:
